Your Business Story
It's All About the Hero (You!)

  • Do you want to learn how to make your company more successful?
  • Is this your first startup company and you want to “do it right”?
  • Are you a first-time CEO or an experienced CEO facing some tough challenges?
  • Do you need to raise capital to start or grow your business?

Idea To Growth LLC was formed to help Entrepreneurs and CEO’s learn the best techniques and have the best tools to help you make your businesses more successful!


“The best stories ever told consist of 7-elements.”

“The 1st Story element is you – the Client – who is always the Hero of the story.”

“The 2nd Story element is the Challenge that the Hero (you, the Client) are facing.”

“The 3rd Story element is the Hero (You, the Client) seeks a Guide (Me, the Vendor). The Hero is never looking for another Hero. The Hero is looking for a Guide to point out the paths to success and where the enemies are waiting to try to kill the Hero.”

“The 4th Story element is the Hero (you, the Client) asks the Guide (Me, the Vendor) to help Create a Plan. The Hero trusts a Guide who has a Plan.”

“The 5th Story element is the Hero (you, the Client) receives a Challenge from the Guide (Me, the Vendor) to push the Hero to take Action. The Hero is often stuck in neutral not knowing the best course of action. The Challenge from the Guide pushes the Hero into Action.”

“The 6th Story element is the Hero (You, the Client) gets help from the Guide (Me, the Vendor) to avoid Failure. In stories, the Hero will be faced with Death at every turn, but the wisdom the Guide shares with the Hero enables the Hero to avoid Death.”

“The 7th Story element is the Hero (You, the Client) gets help from the Guide (Me, the Vendor) to find a path to Success. In stories, the Hero in the end always achieves their goal – saving the boy or girl – or in your case, having a more successful company.”

I have always shared my belief that with every engagement, each person should strive to give the other person a “Great Story to Share”, otherwise, you are wasting each others time. I can promise you that this will be my goal should you, the Hero, choose me to be your Guide for your Story.

Executive Coaching FAQ's

YES!

Our first meeting together is exactly like a 30-minute blind first date. We need to chat a bit and learn more about each other. 

You need to get your questions about how I work with you, my experiences, learn a bit about my personality, to see if I’m the right Coach for you and the challenges you need help with.

I need to listen and answer your questions in a way that you easily understand. Only by understanding your challenges, learning a bit about how you are thinking about them, as well as what your challenges are, can I determine if I am the right Coach to help you solve them.

Like I said, just like a blind first date!

Step 1: You reach out to me either by the contact form or by selecting a spot on the calendar on this page.

Step 2: We have a 30-minute video chat. During this time we get to know a bit about each other and the challenges you are facing. At the end, if we agree there is a match, we set a date and time for a 4-hour Kick-off Coaching Session. This will either be an 8 am until noon or 1 pm to 5 pm time slot.

Step 3: At our 4-hour Kick-off you will talk 75% of the time. You will describe your challenges. I will ask related questions. In the last hour, we will create a list of OKR’s (Objectives and Key Results) designed together to guide you towards a set of solutions.

Step 4: We will have 1-hour followup meetings every 2 weeks (every week if you are in a crisis mode). You will report on your OKR progress. We will discuss how to catch up on delinquent items and the deliverables on the successfully completed OKR’s. 

Step 5: You complete your OKR’s successfully, and having solved your challenges, we shake hands and you move on with your business!

We can meet either in person or by video chat.

If you are local to the Tampa, FL area, we would meet at the Centre Club of Tampa.

Nothing.

An open mind and a rested mind.

You know what challenges you are facing. It helps many of us to have a list of topics in a notes file before we chat. 

Executive Training

Executive Training – Did you take that course in college? I doubt it. Even MBA college students don’t necessarily get hands-on training on ‘How-To’ education on day-to-day business life situations like:

  •  Delegation
  •  Effective Communication
  •  Setting Goals & Tasks for Direct Reports
  •  Talent Management
  •  Change Management
  •  Forward Thinking
  •  Confidence Without Arrogance
  •  Honesty and Integrity
  •  Be a Leader not a Micro-Manager
  •  Management is Not the same as Leadership
  •  Ability to Listen and Debate
  •  … and More…
You and your management team will participate in four-hour or all-day sessions learning these critical management skills before its too late! You’ll leave with a new way of thinking about how to effectively manage, build and keep strong teams.

Step 3: Training sessions are interactive. I talk. I ask questions of your team. Your team asks questions. There will be some 3-5 minutes quizzes that attendees take on their phones, tablets or laptops.

Step 4: We close the last 10-minutes where I refer attendees to followup material they should read or refer to on the training topic as the needs arise. 

Step 5: I followup by email within 24 hours asking each attendee for an assessment of the value they took away from the training. I follow up with each attendee 4- 6 weeks later with a short inquiry as to whether they used their training since our training session and specifically what part.

I do training only in person. 

If you are local to the Tampa, FL area, we can meet at the Centre Club of Tampa or at your office.

If you are outside of the greater Tampa FL area, I will travel to your location for training. 

YES!

Schedule a time for our initial chat. If we agree that we have a match, I will share a detailed outline of what I will be teaching.

After the training session, all attendees will have a membership account to access the slide deck I presented.

Educational Products

If you like to learn through books, you can buy my books in your favorite medium – Paperback, eBook, Audio Book, and Book on CD – and learn about how to best tackle a variety of business issues.

My business career has been all about starting, building, launching, growing and then selling high-tech companies. I am constantly bombarded with almost every imaginable question on startups. I can’t answer them all with personal replies, do I decided to write a series of books on the business of startups. 

The first set of writings is a 3-book series I titled “The Successful Startup Entrepreneur Series”.

My 1st book in this series is: “ANGEL INVESTORS TO VENTURE CAPITAL – 10 SLIDES TO STARTUP FUNDING SUCCESS (ENTREPRENEURS GUIDE TO RAISING VENTURE CAPITAL)”. This book was published January 22, 2019 and is available in Paperback and eBook on Amazon.

My 2nd book in this series “INVESTOR DUE DILIGENCE” – WHAT INVESTORS NEED TO KNOW TO FUND YOUR STARTUP” is expected to be published in late 2019.

My 3rd book in this series “THE 4-STAGES OF EVERY SUCCESSFUL STARTUP AND HOW TO NAVIGATE THEM SUCCESSFULLY”. In this series, I tackle every issue that arises in building your startup through the 4-Stages that every successful business will travel – Idea Stage – Build Stage – Launch Stage – Growth Stage – and teach you the lessons of what to do – and not do – as you navigate each business stage.

I also have a series of eBook Guides exclusively for my Club Members via my website. Joining my Book Club is 100% Free as are most of the eBooks. A few of the eBooks will be available to Gold Club members only for a nominal monthly Gold Club Membership fee. More details are coming soon!

Partner Services

Kenneth Ervin Young owns many businesses, including this one, Idea To Growth LLC (www.IdeaToGrowth.com), the parent company.

Originally I offered many services under the umbrella of Idea To Growth LLC. Services included not only the Executive Coaching, Training, Speaking and Executive Educational products, but also other critical services that businesses need.

These other services included:

  • Website Design, Development, Maintenance & Hosting
  • Website (Page Open) Speedup Service
  • Website Repair Service (Have I Been Hacked?)
  • Social Media Services

As each of these businesses grew, as they should, they needed additional resources. 

Also, having many somewhat related, but different businesses under a single company name, potential new clients found confusing. 

So, I split them up into separate child companies. They are:

Each company is owned and managed by me to my highest standards. I stand 100% behind their products, services and customer services. If you’re 100% satisfied, or not happy, I want to hear from you.

Kenneth Ervin Young, CEO
